IBM® X.25 Over TCP/IP for Communication Controller for Linux helps you modernize and simplify your network.
Move your X.25 support from aging network hardware to Linux® on a System z™ platform with software that operates with IBM Communication Controller for Linux.
- Helps you consolidate onto System z processors and continue to run your X.25 network-based applications without requiring the IBM 3745/46 hardware
- Together with IBM Communication Controller for Linux on System z, makes it possible for a System z server with Linux to run the IBM Network Control Program (NCP) and NCP Packet Switching Interface (NPSI) to communicate with other X.25-capable nodes, using the x.25 over TCP/IP (XOT) protocol as described by RFC1613
- Supports Logical Channel Group Number (LCGN) for a minimum of configuration changes in NCP/NPSI definitions
- Supports a maximum of 64 virtual adapters, each of which represents a virtual physical line, and up to 4,095 virtual circuits per virtual adapter (virtual physical line)
- Runs on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux 4 for IBM System z9™ and zSeries® mainframes
